Before the hearings about Eddie Obeid and Ian McDonald started the only thing said about those two people was that as politicians they couldn't cut the mustard and they had far too much influence in Government.
The Hearings has shown these two politicians and others to have very little moral fibre.
The scale of corruption has been t on a large scale and but it has been quite surprising as no-one but no-one was even whispering about anything like this.
This is why ICAC was set up. To delve in things that are 'smelly' and find out the truth.
NSW is a much better State because of the hearings. Government will be improved as will the ALP.
